Hello I just found this video on YouTube: I don’t know if members are allowed to post link to external sources but I just felt like this clip was definitely food for thought especially for people with learning disabilities.
<o>
</o>I realized it made sense, to a certain degree…
I hope that you will enjoy it

Hello Dorm,
<O:p
I just read your reaction to this post and I felt the need to explain why this video «struck a cord» with me. I agree with you that lady is pushy, but some of the points she made were of some validity in my case.
<O:p</O:p
To make a long story short: I am a 33 year, old college and university graduate. I was an above average student and I had to work very hard to get these grades. Reading</ST1:p and writing are two of my major hobbies. While, I always suspected that something was wrong with my reading and writing skills, I never thought about the possibility that I might have dyslexia or add. I just thought that I was a bad speller, who needed to proofread more carefully.
<O:p</O:p
Then, my professional life became a total mess, when I realized that I could not keep a job, I got tested and diagnosed with severe phonological dyslexia and as a «Bonus» ADD.
<O:p</O:p
Ever since I was diagnosed, four months ago, I seem to have lost the joy of reading, because, l guess that knowing of and learning about this disability made me realize that I wasn’t actually reading words but more like recognizing them visually. That’s frustrating to me. The video also made me realize that the way I read is not «standard» for sure, but it has proved itself to be affective since I was able to graduate and read many book so far. So, why not continue… I am not saying I will not work to improve my skills. I got a sense that I needed to «de-dramatize» my situation and my feelings a little
<O:p</O:p
Since the clip was useful to me, I believe that it might bring something to another member.<O:p</O:p
